Silly Models! Stay On Your Feet!
When you look into the eyes of 16 year-old Abbey Lee Kershaw, you don't exactly see a glowing, happy high school girl, do you? Alas, near the end of a long day, in which she woke up at 5 am and walked her last show more than 15 hours later, Abbey was nearly done with her stroll in Alexander McQueen's presentation when she fainted just before leaving the stage. Yikes. I suppose the leather corset she's wearing may be somewhat worrisome, but I think a lot of it has to do with the monthlong marathon of fashion shows that she has struggled through. Just a few weeks back in New York, Abbey also took a spill at the Rodarte show in her extremely high platforms and tight pants. Dangerous shoes are apparently a trend for Spring 2009, but if models can't navigate the runways in them, how are civilians going to traverse the less-than-ideal streets of New York? On a side note, the Alexander McQueen show was exceptionally beautiful.
